This workshop is meant specifically for doctoral candidates and recent doctoral graduates. It focuses on the distinctive aspects of applying for industry jobs and short-term research placements (such as postdocs) in English-speaking countries or with any organization worldwide which follows Anglo-American hiring conventions. It provides training in navigating selected stages of that process, including creating the curriculum vitae and cover letter and presenting oneself convincingly in the interview. We will address dos and don’ts, phases useful for the CV, cover letter and interview, several differences between Anglo-American and German CVs, miscellaneous written materials and typical interview questions. Participants receive a 20-page handout which includes examples of CVs and cover letters. The workshop is held in English by a native speaker.
Lecturer Andrew Cerniski has been training job-application skills for over fourteen years. Since 2002 he has managed English, Inc., a Heidelberg-based provider of Business English training.
